    I have a 88 civic with b16a that im going to try to get the smog check done. I am curious what is the smog legal computer to use in ca? I was told by a frind to find I p30 ecu from a 92-95 del sol dohc vtec . I found one with the numbers 37820 p30 000 470 101931 ash . I can get a good deal on it but I need to know if its what I need before I buy it. Money is also kind of tight so I hate to buy it if its not what I need. thanks for any help.

    it doesnt really matter, you'll most likely not pass BAR the first time, so you'll have to fix a bunch of crap before it'll smog anyways
